here’s another:

I was hunting one day and I traveled 5 miles south when I came across a giant bear. It scared the bejeesus out of me and I ran five miles east to escape it. Tired and hungry, and after nearly dying, I caught my breath and travelled 5 miles north to return home. What color was the bear?

Bob, it would have to be a white polar bear, only at the north pole would those measurements work.

There is hope for me yet. Had to think a little, then laugh a little, but thankfully, came out with 100% right. I especially enjoyed the one about the yolk. Thanks for sharing.
